Leadership By Virtue: The Economy and a ‘cultural noise in the background ... (Reblog)

The word "economy" can be traced back to the Greek word "oikonomos" meaning ‘one who manages a household.’ ... : Leadership By Virtue: The Economy and a ‘cultural noise in the background

Jaro Berce's blog, Leadership By Virtue, is a blog about his book by that name.  Just recently started following it and picked up on this because it was listed as one of the “Popular Posts”. Indeed discussing the economy is always “popular”. ☺  Those so-called “discussions” can be downright ruthless sometimes. We're talking serious kung fu fighting! Yet and still, in my opinion, gaining even an introductory or elementary knowledge and understanding of economics has its value. 

It's also interesting to note how West meets East, i.e. how westerners make application of eastern philosophy and principles.

Scota: Mother of the Scottish People | Ancient History Encyclopedia

History is a topic that almost anybody can write about, if they know what they're talking about, and make it extremely interesting and informative for other people (like me) who have no knowledge of the facts whatsoever.



One of the blogs I like or follow is The Freelance History Writer, published by history lover, Ms. Susan Abernethy.  She started out writing about women's history and then decided to diversify.

Ms. Abernathy's love for this subject was recognized and appreciated by a reputable non-profit organization, and she was asked to write a guest post for them. She holds the honor of being the first guest blogger for Ancient History Encyclopedia. The title of her guest post is Scota: Mother of the Scottish People.  At her own blog this post was tagged “DNA analysis”. 

  • Do you know who discovered that DNA could be categorized into 7 basic groups?  
  • What do you know about "Lia Fail"?  


This historical adventure really took me places.
Thanks Ms. Abernathy!  :)

The Death Game: Book Review by Chris Longmuir

Found the link below because it was shared in a Writers, Readers, Researchers & Reviewers Group on Facebook.  I prefer historical romance novels myself but the reviewer seemed to be really enthusiastic about this historical mystery.  It has peaked my interest in exploring other historical mysteries.
